UPDATE: YOU CAN READ ABOUT MY EXPERIANCES IN 48 HOURS HERE: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=9049726 UPDATE: FIND OUT HOW YOUR BATTERY COMPARES TO OTHERS HERE: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=844645 Hi all this is my first post and very glad to be a member of macrumours! this morning I receieved my MacBook Air (revision a) from eBay for just £500! As a result I was pleased to see I arrived in decent condition! I have been an exclusive windows user for my entire life - and quite a proficent one at that often being subjected to crys for help from family and friends! I love my iPhone and the whole ethos of apple and couldn't wait to get my first mac. Sadly my first 10ish hours with my mac have been dreadful. Read on to find out why... When it arrived I noticed really bad shadowing on the screen. I went straight to the apple store who told me it would be a £300 repair. Thankfully it was down to post office negligence for which I am covered for! Bad point number two was the complete inability to access my iTunes library on my windows 7 pc. It wouldn't recognise it on the mac at all!? Neither was it easy to simply access my shared folders. I know I may be about to get shot down here as I'm sure a lot of people here will not be pleased I'm bad mouthing macs but I cannot comprehend why the red x and the orange - do virtually the same job!? I also don't understand why apple make it so hard to resize a window - I miss aero snap very much already! I have also had the unit almost on constant charge all day an haven't come close to full charge!? I haven't been able to install iLife as it quits half way through - something wrong with the package? And after 10 hours of non stop struggle this laptop has completely ruined my enthusiasm for the product. Can some one please tell me some of the benefits of having this laptopto take away some of the angst of today's disaster!! I will inevitably calm down and try again tomorrow to set it up and start actually using it but today had been nothing more than a waste of time, energy and right now... Money. Really dissapointed, I thought that from today I could call myself "a mac" as the term goes. Right now I'm considering tatooing PC to my forhead. I will follow up tomorrow with how day two fares. It can't be any worse.
